MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The spokesman added that deliveries of the simulator complexes was essential for SMF, because missile systems were permanently on alert and they could not be used for training.

"In 2016, more than 100 newest simulator complexes are expected to be delivered to forces and units of [Russia's] Strategic Missile Forces, which are rearmed with Yars mobile ground missile systems. By 2020, Strategic Missile Forces will receive some 1,000 simulator complexes to train specialists for advanced missile systems," Dmitry Andreev said.

Russia is planning to modernize up to 70 percent of its military hardware by 2020. Total modernization program cost is estimated to reach about 20 trillion rubles (some $274 billion at current exchange rates).
